The fifteenth annual Celebration of Teaching Excellence will be celebrated from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m., with presentations beginning at 4:30. The presentation will start at 4:30, but attendees are encouraged to join from 4:00 - 4:30 to troubleshoot their technology, watch a slideshow of present and past winners, and connect with colleagues.
In order to properly view the presentation without Teams cropping it in anyway, it will be necessary to click on the three dots by the name "Peter Marval" and select "fit to frame". You can also right click anywhere over the presentation and choose "fit to frame" from the popup menu.
If you do not have MS Teams, you can connect through the web without downloading any software. Click on the MS Teams meeting link. Then you should see options - please select “Join on the web instead”.
If you join on the web, you can use either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Your browser may ask if it's okay for Teams to use your mic and camera. Be sure to allow it so you'll be seen and heard in your meeting.
- If you have trouble connecting, you can copy the meeting link and paste it into the Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browser.
- View additional instructions if necessary.
For those who wish to do so, you can download MS Teams in advance.
